This Fall, the Industrial Heating Equipment Association (IHEA) is proud to offer the 47th Combustion Seminar, the ever-popular Safety Standards Seminar, and the revised Induction Seminar, to be held at the Cincinnati Marriott RiverCenter in Covington, KY. The concurrent seminars will be held September 19 and 20 along with a joint Tabletop Exhibition and Reception on Monday, September 19. The tabletop exhibition features companies from all the technologies represented throughout the three seminars.
The Annual Combustion Seminar has been the leading educational opportunity for those in the industry for more than four decades. Attendees receive valuable instruction from experts in combustion technologies. The seminar is designed to provide current and relevant information for those responsible for the operation, design, selection and/or maintenance of fuel-fired industrial process furnaces and ovens. The two-day class consists of eighteen sessions which are led by knowledgeable speakers from IHEA member companies. Topics include: Air-Gas Premixing, Applications, Burners, Controls, Flame Supervision, Gas Flow Measurement, Infrared Heating, Metering, Troubleshooting and more.
IHEA also offers its comprehensive Safety Standards Seminar during the fall seminars. This simultaneous seminar provides critical safety information for those involved with the design, manufacture, service or operation of ovens, furnaces, kilns, dryers, thermal oxidizers and a wide range of industrial applications. Speakers will highlight and discuss changes in the NFPA 86 standard that was released in the fall of 2015. Attendees will be able to learn about these important changes to the NFPA 86 standard and how they can affect their operation. Seminar speakers have a firsthand working knowledge in the development of the NFPA 86 standard. Don't miss the opportunity to speak with members of the NFPA 86 Technical Committee who are directly involved with the maintenance of this Standard.
Furthermore, in conjunction with our newly developed Induction Division, IHEA has revised the Induction Seminar to provide a complete understanding of the technology. During this one-day seminar on Monday, September 19, attendees will learn about the basics of induction technology, equipment needed for an induction operation, induction processes, applications and markets, advantages of induction for improving plant operations and what is needed to set up an induction operation. Seminar speakers are leaders in the induction industry.
The Tabletop Exhibition and Reception offers attendees from all three seminars the opportunity to speak with company representatives and learn more about the products and services discussed in the classroom environment throughout the day. A past attendee recalls, "I liked being able to learn more about the speakers and their companies during the tabletop exhibit. I was able to ask questions that I didn't ask during class." Tabletops and sponsorships are still available for the 2016 fall seminars.
Registration fees for each seminar include all seminar handout materials, Monday evening Reception with Tabletop Exhibition, and breakfast and luncheons on both days. Upon completion of the course, seminar attendees are awarded a certificate of completion.

IHEA's Fall Business Conference follows the seminars at the Cincinnati Marriott RiverCenter, which includes an Underground Brewery Tour and Tasting on Tuesday evening, September 20th. The Association holds this conference each fall for the purpose of bringing together IHEA member company representatives to conduct committee meetings and focus on IHEA's mission: "driving its members' success by providing the knowledge base and authoritative voice for industrial heat processing."
